"Street-lit pioneer Woods (True to the Game) makes her hardcover debut with this gritty, botched robbery tale. While giving a sympathetic voice to her financially desperate heroine-who entertains no fantasies of knights in shining armor and uses sex to get what she wants-Woods observes that easy cash comes with a steep price. Her fans are sure to demand this; buy multiple copies."—Library Journal on ALIBI
"Woods writes with feeling and a strong sense of her Philadelphia setting; in addition her characters manage to become more than just stereotypes they initially appear to be. Fast-paced and exciting, Alibi is an action-filled story about the desperate life of one urban girl and the of consequences trying to break away. Woods' following will snap this up, but it can find a wider audience with thriller readers who like George Pelecanos' The Turnaround and with fans of the urban crime drama The Wire."—Booklist on ALIBI
"This New Jersey author has the urban fiction genre locked up."—Sunday Star Ledger on ALIBI
"Urban fiction fans will welcome the melodramatic final entry in bestseller Woods's True to the Game trilogy, which vividly depicts the 1990s drug culture."—Publishers Weekly on TRUE TO THE GAME III
"Woods keeps it raw in this gutsy sequel that features the round-the-way girl who fell hard for Quadir, the millionaire drug dealer."—Essence magazine on TRUE TO THE GAME II --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

that are played in the streets; a story of some people's reality.
It's a heart wrenching story of drugs, love, and the love of money.
Gena, a young girl barely legal, was raised in the Richard Allen
projects in Philly. She's smart, witty, and knows what her heart
desires. Growing up in the projects, she comes to the realization that
money is power and the more money you have the more power you have.
She thrived on fun and spending money and with her spending habits a
regular nine to five would not suffice.
As Gena mingle with the street lords and leaders, she finds true
love. Quadir, a young handsome man with aspirations of being a
dentist, finds himself forced into the streets as a means to help his
family survive. Yet, Quadir was sucked into a life of fast money and
women at his beck and call. It was a life hard to let go of.
After Gena and Quadir found true love, he realizes that he was a
street made millionaire and was ready to give it all up. However,
before he is able to turn over a new leaf, death and destruction would
claim the life of many.
Leaving Gena hopeless and poor forcing her to realize that she has
come too far to turn back to the projects. Just when Gena feels that
she is at her lowest she stumble across what she needs to brings her
back to her one love...the love of money.
Teri Woods does a wonderful job of bringing the realities of street-
life and placing it at the hands of her readers. If you�re looking for
a love story with street-life virtue, this is the book you want to
read. I highly recommend True To The Game.
Even though the book has misspelled words and the grammar isn't so perfect, the book in general is incredible. The main characters, Gena, Sahirah, and Quadir live in a life full of drugs, sex and violence. The setting takes place in Harlem, New York and in Philadelphia around the 1990's. Gena and Quadir are living a Cinderella-type of love, in a ghetto/dangerous way. The story has an easy to read plot.
I recommend this book to everyone. Once you start reading it, you would not put it down to until you have finished it. Most teenagers are living in denial about how their life is perfect but this book is a reflection of their lives.
